Boston, MA – CrunchTime! Information Systems, a global leader in cost control solutions for the hospitality industries, recently conducted its annual Rowathon fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Boston; donations exceeded $12,000.
“Children’s Hospital is a terrific organization, and we’re proud to be able to support them- as we have for many years.” said Bill Bellissimo, President of CrunchTime!
